ELKHORN—A family of four is facing charges related to delivering controlled substances since June 2013, according to criminal complaints.

The parents and two sons reportedly worked together selling various drugs out of their homes and at public locations in Walworth County.

The people facing drug-related charges, according to the complaints, are:

-- Richard K. Fibish Sr., 43, of 750 Ann St., West Side, Lake Geneva, charged with felony delivery of schedule I or II narcotics and three felony counts of party to delivery of schedule I or II narcotics.

-- Justina L. Fibish, 44, of 750 Ann St., Lake Geneva, charged with felony party to delivery of schedule I or II narcotics and three felony counts of delivery of schedule I or II narcotics.

-- Richard K. Fibish Jr., 25, of 213 Williams St., No. 5, Williams Bay, charged with felony party to delivery of schedule I or II narcotics and two felony counts of delivery of schedule I, II, or II non-narcotics.

-- Zakary R. Fibish, 21, of 953 Henry St., Lake Geneva, charged with three felony counts of party to delivery of schedule I or II narcotics.

Justina and Richard Fibish Sr. are the parents of Richard Fibish Jr. and Zakary Fibish, said James Duquette, Justina Fibish's attorney.

The four were arrested Monday, according to jail records.

On several occasions, the Walworth County Drug Unit used a confidential informant to purchase morphine, Oxycodone, Percocet, Vicodin, Oxycontin and other controlled substances from each family member, the complaints state.  

Justina Fibish reportedly sold morphine pills to the informant twice—once July 4, 2013, and again Aug. 30, 2013—for a total of $220, one complaint states. On Nov. 14, 2013, the woman reportedly called the informant and sent the informant to buy 10 Oxycontin tablets worth $150 from her son at his Williams Bay home.

On two occasions in September and October 2013, Richard K. Fibish Sr. allegedly told the informant via phone to meet his youngest son, Zakary, at Pizza Hut in Lake Geneva. There, a drug unit officer saw Zakary give the informant Oxycodone and Roxicodone on both occasions.

Each member of the Fibish family is being held at the Walworth County Jail on $1,500 cash bonds, according to online court records.

Zakary and his parents will appear in court at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 4, at the Walworth County Judicial Center. On Friday, Richard K. Fibish Jr. was not yet scheduled for another court appearance.
